Olivia Thistle, founded by acclaimed designer, completes winter wedding belle’s look with enchanting vintage-style veils

While many may see summer as the peak time for weddings, the colder climates can also present an appealing range of stylistic possibilities for winter nuptials. With the drop in temperature encompassing suggestions of fur, cool coloured fabrics and sparkling gems, vintage, high class glamour is a popular theme for weddings of this season. Olivia Thistle, luxury wedding accessories brand, provides the perfect finishing touch to any stunning starlet’s bridal outfit with its selection of hand-crafted veils and headdresses, inspired by the 1920’s era.

William Drummond is the artistic vision that drives the elegant bridal brand, and although his name may not be instantly recognisable, his extraordinary flair and creations are long established throughout the fashion world. Currently using his talents to form Theory’s RTW 2017 line, Drummond’s aptitude for dress has seen him join fashion houses such as Tom Ford and Thakoon, as well as performing styling duties for white-hot celebrities such as Daisy Bevan. However, a strong understanding of formal aesthetics was formed when working with Marchesa, assisting the renowned luxury gown designer’s RTW and bridal collection in S/S 2013.

William Drummond, designer and founder at Olivia Thistle revealed, “I adore all elements of women’s fashion, yet feel drawn towards the bridal industry in particular due to the ultimate luxury that this moment holds for the bride-to-be. While the red carpet may give the opportunity to dress extravagantly, there is a certain delicate elegance that wedding gowns and accessories must possess that is unique to this occasion. ”

Inspired by vintage films and old time glamour, each Olivia Thistle headdress encapsulates the sophisticated sirens of a bygone eras. Comprising of high quality fabrics such as delicate lace, airy chiffon, subtle satins and glimmering rhinestones, Drummond forms these materials into shapes that capture the 1920’s, yet presents it in an inimitable way. Brides searching for a look that is both unique yet undeniably established through time can find the answer they are looking for in an Olivia Thistle accessory.

William Drummond continued “Amongst my usual work at global fashion houses, I found myself receiving a growing number of commissions for my wedding gown and veil designs, highlighting an interest in these styles. Olivia Thistle is a response to this demand, brining as much joy to brides across the world as I find in creating each unique, chic, elegant headpiece.”
